“Meadow Park Chatham is very honoured to participate in the up-coming Senior Health Care Job Fair. Care and services have never been more important with seniors requiring more specialized care and the increasing need for long-term care placement in our community. It is imperative that we promote the value and impact of a rewarding career in senior health care. Opportunities, like the Senior Health Care Job Fair allows our home to connect with like-minded individuals who have a passion for senior care and a drive to make a difference in the lives of those we care for each day.” Lydia Swant, Volunteer Coordinator.
